    Hi, I was wondering if anybody has been attending RC through their GP? I was looking at the website & it said that some classes run a referral scheme through your GP or PCT. I've heard about GP's doing this with SW or the local gym but not RC. Anybody had any luck getting classes on this scheme??

    Oh that's a shame, you would think that the fact the RC combines diet & fitness would mean that it's better for you so the NHS would be backing it!??

    Hi, I live in Birmingham and I have just been given the choice, RC, WW or SW it's a 12 week course and I have picked RC and start tomorrow night.
    In Birmingham it's called lighten up, and you get referred through your gp.
    So defiantly still running. :0)

    Oh excellent, I suppose it depends on you local PCT. Well worth finding out if they do, thank you.
